Wishing You All a Magical and Adventure Filled New Year in 2015

As this current year ends; every New Year brings us the opportunity for innovative  intentions, special  adventures  and a chance to reflect on the times and events of the past year.

Many of us will ring in the season with a beautiful bottle of champagne and a magical evening with friends! Some will spend a quiet evening at home surrounded by the loving warmth of family.

One thing I intend in 2015 is to look for beauty and joy all around me. I will  spread love, peace, and light everywhere I go and to everyone I meet.

LIfe is never perfect and there will always be challenges and rainy days. Yet, there is so much in life that I have to be grateful!

Surrounding myself with light from above will keep me ever thankful.

Embracing New Adventures!!

So celebrate this wondrous life we have here on Earth and remember that all good things come to us in the most unexpected ways!

Happy New Years to my beloved Family, loyal friends and faithful Followers!

I like your attitude! Finding joy in the little things and recognizing that we may not always get things exactly right;) ..but we can come close and most of us get what we need.

Wishing you a healthy and peaceful year ahead.

Dear Karena,

You can delete this comment.

I've been looking at your dated icon on my blog roll — the Civil War one that never updates — and I notice that if I click on your name, I get your current posting. So I have a suggestion. Why don't you go to that posting, delete the text, rename the title with the words "Click on 'The Arts by Karena' for new postings," and then replace the book image with your portrait, or an image of your home page? I think that could possibly work very well, especially for someone like myself who wants you on my blog roll!

Best wishes, Mark

Good morning beautiful friend!

I am finally here; we are having really bad weather here, but still required to go to work! It took me 2 hours to get home last night in bumper to bumper traffic in very bad snowy conditions. There were 589 car accidents yesterday!

Thank you for the well-wishes for the year....the same to YOU! All is well, but I'm already starting the year off with some health issues....I guess this is what happens when you age! But all is well, (I hope!)

Be well, enjoy the new challenges of fun and creativity! Anita

What a great inspiration as we embark on this new year. I agree 100% with you on making every day as great as possible. Yes, there will be hiccups along the way, but I believe we can overcome them by embracing all of the good things in our lives. Here's to a wonderful 2015 for us all.


Happy New Year, Karena.

Life is like a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
